These are by far my favourite girls of The Selection series. I don't get the love for Kriss, for some reason I really don't like that girl. 
Celeste turns out to be a total sweetheart and from that point on, I simply loved her ♥ Marlee has been sweet from the start, Lucy 
is so fragile and kind and then there is of course America. You just have to love her (even though she sometimes does super dumb things).  
If you haven't read The Selection by Kiera Cass yet, do so! It's definitely worth it. 
At first I was all like, it has a nice cover but I bet that's it about it. But my sister got the english version of the first book and kinda forced me to read it too because she wanted someone she could talk with about the books. Turns out this is my favourite book series ever! 
Hope you like it ♥

I love how you made Celeste, she is breathtaking, as she should be! I'm glad her character got fleshed out more but I wish it was a more realistic turn. You don't go from dark to light in five minutes. But I still liked that she didn't turn out to be a mean girl just because you need a mean girl. Marlee is so cute ^_^ I have to read "The Favorite" :)

That is exactly how I thought Celeste would look like. I'm still upset that she had to die, but this was amazing

yeah I'm still pretty bummed, too. Actually, she is one of my favourite selection girls,
since there's actual depth to her character

Beautiful! Celeste I miss you *cries for a while * I don't either get the love for Kriss I actually kind of hated her in some parts of the books but one of my all time favourite caracters must be America she is unique.

Oh god, I coulnd't stand Kriss at all. Maybe because she reminded me of some girl I hated anyway. I miss Celeste too :( I really adored her at the end, she was such a cute person after all.

I think that everyone has a Kriss in their life, unfortunately. I loved Celeste it was sad to loose such a great character and personality.

definitely. It's that girl that everyone somehow likes and you just don't know why. And Celeste is that girl, that you start loving after you've hated her for ages.
hamdus7's avatar
Yeah you're totally right. I am glad that I am not the only one who hate that girls and all the other girls who reminds of her. We seem to have same opinions so I really want to know what you think about the fourth book "The heir".

I only just finished it. I feel like she made the right choice though I didn't really feel all the love that Maxon and America shared.
Maybe there should have been more romantic scenes between the two...but I was really happy for Hale.

Yeah, haven't the fifth book been released?

Eadlyn was cool and all but nowhere near America. 
But I think the guys we're all really cool and of courses I enjoyed reading the book!
